I’m not entirely sure where or how to begin talking about myself; it’s quite awkward to try to describe yourself… Hm, let’s see – I’m extremely hyperactive, I curse excessively (a habit I’m really trying to break – as my mom would say “it’s not lady-like to curse like a man“), I take my coffee with one cream one sugar (preferably Splenda), I’m a summer baby – so naturally I love the beach, being poolside and tanning. Also, I’m the middle child of my family. With that said, I suffer from an acute form of middle child syndrome. It’s real, don’t let anyone ever tell you otherwise.
I love to read, love to write. I LOVE the idea of being in love, falling in love, an endless love, finding your forever love – I can’t ever deny it. I’m a hopeless romantic, we’re a dying breed so I intend on suffocating you all with romanticism. You can thank me later.
A Blueberry Girl materialized from a series of events. The first was life altering, the breakup. Newly singlehood was a foreign concept to me. I faced the challenge of finding myself outside of what I once was; I was no longer a “we“ but an me, myself and I.
Second came the need to change my identity; to become somewhat different. Physical appearance was the easiest and most accessible, so I committed to going blue. Blue has always been my favorite color and quite honestly it was fitting. Not only was I feeling blue but my ego was bruised – so black & blue couldn’t have been more appropriate for my hair color. Melodramatic, I know, but that was my rationale at the time.
Next came the association to “Christine” by Siouxsie and the Banshees. As I’ve continued to transition into this newly defined “me“, I’ve found myself spending a great deal of time at a friend’s/boyfriend/boy as friend with benefits‘ house; inevitably, the family started referring to me as Christine, the blueberry girl as opposed to the strawberry girl which are the actual lyrics. They’ve remixed the song on my behalf so I’ve since decided that I’d take full ownership of the nickname.
Hence; A Blueberry Girl transpired.
